Care for Animals at Colombo Zoo in Sri Lanka, Volunteering
         

Nothing was too much trouble and we felt very supported by all staff at the house, and the drivers.

There were various 'favourite' bits during the placement, including the bathing and scrubbing of the elephants in the pond at the zoo using a coconut shell.  Where else would you be able to do something as amazing as that? However, for me, the hand feeding of the male hippo was the most exciting part - being that close to something usually deemed so dangerous!

Also, during our free time we got to release some baby turtles back into the sea - one of those things that makes you feel so good inside - the work they are doing there is so selfless in a country that has so little money - it is very humbling.

Overall, the closeness we got to the wildest of animals was something I will treasure forever.
